Ratings and Reviews
You all came so close to making a really great improvement. Highlighting RECENTLY contacted profiles is definitely helpful – It’s better than nothing - but it only works on the very first day that you use it. Every day after that, you have to click on every profile to see if you’ve contacted them before, which defeats the purpose of the feature in the first place. I can’t speak for everybody, but if I contact someone and they don’t respond, I don’t need to see their profile again for AT LEAST 30 days. In my experience if someone doesn’t answer you the first time, they never well. It’s just not meant to be. Besides, what lunatic would contact the same person, day after day, indefinitely, without a response? That’s called stalking.
Addendum: What would be AMAZINGLY helpful, especially for profiles without a thumbnail picture which helps you distinguish one profile from another, is if there was a little asterisk or check mark, etc., in the upper right-hand corner of the profile thumbnail picture on the search screen indicating that you’ve already messaged that member, instead of double-tapping EVERY SINGLE profile EVERY time you open the app to see who you have messaged and who you haven’t. This is extremely - no, EXTREMELY - tedious and time-consuming. And/or perhaps even better, a way to remove profiles from searches without blocking them. Thank you.
We are always evolving and trying to maximize your options in the app. We'd like to hear more about how we can improve some features. You can go to http://grindr.uservoice.com to submit your suggestions. 😉
Back when this app first came out it was the best app out on the market there was no competition and never any issues. Then as time went on few glitches here and there minus setbacks nothing major. Then came time you had to pay for a subscription. That’s when the app got bad customer service started to decline and all they cared about was getting you subscription money. They upgraded and updated started adding on useless stuff like emoji cons that you already have on your phone and the price for a subscription went up again. Add things to the app that are useful not useless the location provided I thought I was talking to somebody that was only 4000 feet away from me and he was over in grease so how is that correct and working it doesn’t it doesn’t work correctly when you go to send your location within the past two months the app of crushed on my phone 47 times. Loss of all chats frequently loss of pictures and profiles frequently let’s get rid of useless tapped and emoji cons fix the current location issues and put the money from monthly subscriptions into making the app run better and and run like it used to. You shouldn’t have to delete the app and then reinstall in order to be able log back in and unfreeze the issues. Nor should you have to wait for days before you get response to your support email that. Usually doesn’t help you fix the issue that you’re having.
Hello, we apologize for any inconvenience that might have happened. We'd like to personally follow up with you, drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and our specialist will be sorting this out for you.
Ads, spam, and free push messaging ONLY outside of US
Grindr has taken the American market that helped them launch their product and abused the consumer base by forcing customers to pay to receive push notifications while offering it for free when you cross the border into Canada (for example). Meanwhile, we are also inundated by pop up ads and messaged ads and that’s just from their advertisers (most of which are harmful and stereotyping fitting into toxic ideas of body consciousness in the gay community) and then there are all the bots that spam message you porn links. You’re much better off using another social app to meet people and Scruff is noticeably better at this point if you want something similar.
* UPDATE: since posting this, Grindr customer support has messaged me two times asking me to reach out to them if I need any assistance or to help. There’s literally nothing you can help with. Your corporate leadership has run amok and off the rails. I receive more advertisements for penis enlargement or underwear sales then I do actual messages and on top of that whenever you block someone you have to watch a commercial, and if you hop over the Canadian border for example, you receive push notification for free rather than for a monthly service fee. What a disgusting sell-out of a corporation. DOWNLOAD Tinder or Scruff depending on what you are looking for.
